What you'll do

After arriving at our small craft Distillery, myself or my son will take you into the production area. Here we take you through our Rum making process and you get to taste the Molasses as well as smell the spices and wood we use to make the Rum. Once the tour is done, we return to the tasting room where you will taste the three different Rums that we currently make. These come with one of four mixers or are paired with chocolate or coffee depending on your selection. Once a choice has been made, the tasting begins and we discuss the different flavours each person picks up in the Rums and what their overall experience has been like.

Had an amazing experience with Mark and his son. They are friendly and had interesting stories to tell. I learnt a lot about making rum and how much work and passion it takes for them to create their craft rum which also tastes amazing! couldn't help but take a bottle home.

Wonderful insight into how rum is made. The hosts were gracious and offered just enough detail to make it interesting without overdoing it. And, most importantly the runs were yummy!

Mark knows a ton about the rum process. We were surprised to hear that Cape Town/South Africa doesn’t have much of a rum culture. But with businesses like his, it will definitely kick off. Great quality rum and people!
